Plan A: Easy, Sleazy, and awful Cheesey
Transactions: Sign Michael Rosivol to a 4 year 14 million dollar deal, Carlo Coliacovo 2 years 7 million dollars.
Pros: Nothing lost elsewhere on offense, prospects, or picks
Cons: Overpaying for mediocre free agents who have a serious flaw to their game, potential cap inflexibility to resign key players
Plan B: Good Trade, Lets go win
Flyers trade 2013 1st, 2nd, and 5th round picks along with eric wellwood for Jay Boumeester.
Pros: Flyers acquire a legitimate #1b/2a defenseman who will eat big minutes, flyers LTIR situation with mezsaros and pronger makes this cap hit irrelevant, flyers donít overpay for a free-agent or old player.
Cons: Flyers sell some future, as well as a player with very high potential in wellwood. Flyers may have to overpay for boumeester because Calgary still has high demands.
Plan C: Selling the Past for the Present
Flyers trade Danny Briere to Buffalo Sabres for Andrej Sekera and Jordan Leopold.
Pros: Flyers have a balanced, strong, competitive defense from players 1-6, and free themselves from Briereís contract.
Cons: Flyers lose veteran leadership, offensive production, and a playoff menace. Sabres could veto trade, as could Briere.
Plan D: Stealing Headlines and Players:
Flyers offersheet in this order:
1) PK Subban 8 years 50 million
2) Michael Del Zotto 6 years 35 million
3) Dimitri Kulikov 6 years 38 million
Pending offersheet success, Flyers then trade Matt Read, Wayne Simmonds, 3rd round pick for Bobby Ryan.
Voracek Giroux Ryan
Hartnell Schenn Briere
Fedotenko Couturier Wellwood
Rinaldo Talbot Cousins
Subban/Del Zotto/Kulikov Timonen
Pros: Flyers enter the season with a powerful squad balanced on offense and defense, filling in holes, and rolling with a top offensive line, and a studly young defenseman.
Cons: Flyers lose depth on offense, and take huge risks on ryan and Offersheeting even working, all of which are major risks.
Was just wondering what would be the compensation towards montreal ?
